Mikhail Pavin: escape to captivity
The new series of his works dedicated to his favorite models essentially continues his never-ending sequence in which his play with an object turns into grotesque, symbol, declarative act, or an act almost physiological.
The ideal model is devoted to the artist like an Oriental houri. Thus, Pavin can punish and pardon the model and its idea quite freely, purposefully and coherently. And infinitely.
Mikhail Pavin creates the
art situation. The play with dolls in the artist's hands becomes the episodes
of real life, now sensual and erotic, now merciless and sexless.
